The Bike Show from Resonance FM: 4 August 2008: Cycling, politics and ideology




On this week's show we ask whether the bicycle and cycling are inherently left-wing or right-wing. Featuring Ruth Beale and Karen Breneman, two artists who recently rode together from London to the Institute for the Art and Practice of Dissent at Home in Liverpool in search of cycling's socialist and non-conformist past, present and future. Putting the case for the libertarian right is the leading political blogger and cyclist Guido Fawkes who explains why leading members of the British Conservative Party are so keen to advertise their taste for two wheeled transport.

This weekend get on down to Rollapaluza XI "Kingspin" on Friday night at the Bloomsbury Bowling Lanes and Tour De Play, 'a five mile cycle tour looking at playscapes as a form of outsider architecture' starting at the South London Gallery at 12 noon on Saturday.
